Abstract
Recently, a broadband acoustic transmission system (BATS) for underwater acoustics applications was developed as a joint collaboration between the Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (DREA) in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and Sensor Technology Limited in Collingwood, Ontario. The BATS consists of a unique 1-14 kHz Class III barrel-stave flextensional transducer driven by commercial audio components housed in a splash-proof control box which is supplied by a 12 volt marine battery. Input signals can be generated from a variety of audio devices including PC sound cards, CD players, and cassette players.
